I recently went to the red bamboo for the first time with a friend that had previously dined there, i have to say the food was good but the customer service was poor, they brought the food, did not come back to see if you were okay, we finished our meal and waited and waited for someone to come back to ask if there was anything else, i wanted to place an order for takeout as well, and that took forever, the restaurant was not even full and our waitress was nowhere to be found then she had the nerve to state the tip i left was to small! and asked my friend to tip her some more money!!!i purposely only left a $5 tip because of poor customer service, but to have the nerve to ask..my tip for her is develop more service skills/ my friend wanted to leave another $5 and i said no! if you work in a cusotmer service field, you need to understand that your mannerism and your attitude goes a long way/what you put out is what you get back/ be nice, smile always, even if you do not want to, it's your job and do not, i repeat do not ask for a tip/ if you did not get any, it means you did not deserve one!

I have enjoyed there for years, the collard green rolls, chicken parm, and roti cani are my favorites. But they need to clean their bathroom, its a mess.

Vegetarian places in the city seem to be either upscale and super expensive with great atmosphere or inexpensive and pay at the counter/take to go and not the kind of place where you can have a nice night out to dinner with a nice ambience. Red Bamboo offers the big three: 1) amazing vegetarian food, 2) good price, 3) great, cozy ambience. The service is great too. And it's so great knowing that most people in the restaurant are as concious and caring as you are.

this place has the best mock meat, hands down! at first it was hard for me to believe that it *wasn't* chicken! the chicken is definitely the best, btw. the seafood and sometimes the beef can be iffy. overall, though, if you're looking for hearty, filling soul food, this is the place for you. the more deep fried the better, bring it on! this isn't a healthy place - it's pure indulgence. to previous reviewers: shame on you for bragging about leaving an insufficient tip. that's how waiters make their money, they don't get hourly, although i wouldn't expect you to know that because you're obviously a self-centered jerk who likely doesn't live in nyc. my sister is an actress and waited tables for years, so if you or anyone in your family had ever had a real job you'd know this. if you don't want to pay properly for the service you get, stay at home.

Although it's a small place the food and atmosphere are great!

Wow this place is amazing. We came in (9 adults 1 2yr old) right as they opened.Apps came right away. Lunch was out in 10 min and was fantastic. The portions are huge, and everything was so fresh. The staff are like Ninjas, every time I turned around my drink was refilled.I can't say enough how happy I was with RB. I wish there was one in NJ :(

We have had to rely on other people's reviews, coming from Ireland, and had picked 'The Red Bamboo', as our veggie place to go to eat...... Well, we expected it to be good, but, it SO surpassed our expectations!!! The food was THE BEST, the place itself wasn't too bad, the service was good. We are booking again, for next year, for NYC, and have decided, our main place, to eat, EVERY day, will be - 'The Red Bamboo' - it is SO worth the visit!!! Go and be amazed!
